White dreams, Black Africa : the antislavery expedition to the River Niger 1841-1842 by Howard Temperley( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1841 Britain's antislavery crusaders launched a 'civilizing' expedition to the Niger, seeking to cut off the slave trade at its source and make amends for past wrongs by carrying trade, civilization, and Christianity into the African heartland. This book tells the story of this bizarre and ultimately tragic expedition and its aftermath, providing the first single account since the participants published their own experiences in the 1840s. Written by a leading authority on the slave trade, it not only contributes to our knowledge of Britain's humanitarian endeavour but also shed light on the intricate politics of pre-colonial West Africa."--Provided by publisher

Britain and America since independence by Howard Temperley( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the War of Independence ended in 1783, many doubted the ability of Americans to build a nation. Today the United States occupies a position comparable to that of Britain at the zenith of its power." "Britain and American since Independence deals with Anglo-American relations in the widest sense. It shows how the transfer of hegemony from the British Empire to the United States affected the way Britons and Americans viewed one another, and its effect on the evolving social, economic and political connections between two countries." "In spite of political separation, geographical distance, and intermittent periods of hostility, the British have never regarded Americans as 'foreigners'. Americans, in turn, have looked to Britain as the source of their language and culture. Nevertheless, as Howard Temperley shows in this far-ranging study of the two societies, these affinities have often given rise to misunderstanding and confusion - as in the current conflict between Britain's allegiance to the 'special relationship', and America's belief that the future of Britain lies in Europe."--Jacket

A new introduction to American studies by Howard Temperley( Book )

[This text] conveys ... the importance of American Studies. [The text] provides a comprehensive and re-evaluation of America's place in the world and the often tangled paths that led her theres. [It also] provides a contemporary view of the central themes and pre-occupations of American life. Ideals such as the commitment to liberty, equality and material progress are fully examined and new light is shed on the sometimes contradictory ways in which these ideals have informed the nation's history and culture. [This] is essential reading for all students of American history, literature and politics. The general reader, too, will find much of interest in this exploration of the diverse factors that have shaped - and continue to shape - the America we think we know today. -Back cover
